1/1 Photo of Melon and Jicama "sushi"
Krsi Sue's Note:
This is light & refrshing. Slicing melon in thin strips gives you the wrapper for the "sushi"
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Put melons on a plate to collect juice, cut melons in 1/2 lengthwise.
- 2Clean and cut off rind of melons.
- 3While the melon is still on the plate, cut thin slices lengthwise so the slices are long. (For a thinner slice, use a potato peeler).
- 4Leave the melon on the plate until ready to assemble your "sushi".
- 5On a cutting board, cut thin, long julienne sticks of jicama. Cut the sticks 1/2" to 1" longer than the widest of your melon strips.
- 6Pour the melon juice into a small bowl and mix in the honey and ginger.
- 7Lie strips on cutting board, one at a time.
- 8Place 3-4 sticks of jicama on melon flush with one side of the melon - -this will allow a flat side when the rolled "sushi" sits up.
- 9Roll the melon slice around the jicama and sit up on its side. Trim any jicama that might hang over so it sits flat.
- 10Drizzle the honey sauce over the "sushi".
- 11Sprinkle sesame seeds lightly over the fruit.
- 12You may toast the seeds if you wish a nuttier flavor.
